It will be the eighth version of The Match -- and the second that features Mahomes. Last year, Mahomes and Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen lost on the final hole to Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. Curry also has a history with the event. The four-time NBA champion teamed up with Peyton Manning in 2020, losing 4-and-3 to Charles Barkley and Phil Mickelson.
In 2017 and 2018, Curry competed in events on the Korn Ferry Tour. Mahomes and Kelce have each made a habit of participating in the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament, a celebrity golf tournament held each summer in Lake Tahoe.
